Streaming required. Timer starts when you press START at file select. Timer stops when Link stops moving (immediately hold right after last hit on Dark Link). Simultaneous L+R on the Dpad is banned. Speedrun.com rules apply for emulator/console usage. Unless it's "NG+", "NMG" or "glitched" goals, 2nd controller UpA save & quit is NOT allowed. When you Game-Over in the OverWorld, you have to walk over the tile or go back to the same room you GOed in before you can continue on. If the Game-Over happened inside a palace, the player must re-enter the palace and proceed to finish it, NO need to go back to where they GOed. Recommend you also do local recording, in case of internet outage and/or providing proof of your race time, if necessary. Thanks.
